Should the Jets trade up for Tank Carradine?

With the Jet's selection of Sheldon Richardson, it seems logical for the Jets to transform their defense from a 3-4 to a 4-3. The problem though, is how each player would fit into the defensive line. It is said that both Muhammed Wilkerson and Quinton Coples would boht be better suited inside, yet the current situation places both of them on the outside. The easy surefire way to fix this would be to draft Tank Carradine. Tank played outside in the 4-3 for FSU, where he has displayed 1st round talent but a knee injury has caused him to fall to the second round. If selected by the Jets, Carradine would be placed on the outside with Wilkerson and Coples alternating form inside to outside opposite him. However, it seems likely that Tank will be selected prior to the Jets pick, which means that the only way to acquire him would be via trading for a higher pick.

Fans may want to have an offensive player selected, and I, indeed, am one of those. I think the 4-3 could work with the current roster since both Coples and Wilkerson played outside in the 4-3 while in college. Drafting Tank Carradine, however, would allow them to play to their strengthes in the middle.
